Nick Hundley homered, Chris Davis had a two-run double and Adam Jones and Delmon Young also drove in runs for the Orioles.

Tillman (10-5) matched a career high with nine strikeouts, giving up one run and three hits. He won for the third time this month as Baltimore improved to 38-26 away from Camden Yards.

Tillman's lone mistake came in the first when he allowed Jose Abreu's 32nd home run, tying the Orioles' Nelson Cruz and Miami's Giancarlo Stanton for the most in baseball. The homer was Abreu's first of the month.

Justin Upton smashed his 24th home run of the season to spoil Andrew McCutchen's return as the Atlanta Braves beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 11-3 on Tuesday night.

Upton's three-run homer off Francisco Liriano (3-10) in the third broke things open early. He added a two-run single off reliever Brandon Cumpton in the fifth as the Braves extended Pittsburgh's losing streak to a season-high seven games.

Jason Heyward went 2 for 5 with three RBI for the Braves while Evan Gattis hit his 19th homer. Atlanta has won five straight.

Aaron Harang (10-7) struck out four without a walk in 8 1-3 innings.

McCutchen went 0 for 4 in his first game back after missing two weeks with fractured cartilage in his ribs. He left the game after grounding into a double play in the eighth.

Travis Snider, Starling Marte and Russell Martin had two hits apiece for the Pirates.

The St. Louis Cardinals have put second baseman Mark Ellis on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain, retroactive to Aug. 15.

Infielder Greg Garcia was recalled from Triple-A Memphis before Tuesday night's game against Cincinnati.

The 37-year-old Ellis has not played since last Thursday against the Padres. He made four starts after rookie Kolten Wong returned from the disabled list on July 6.

The 25-year-old Garcia was batting .275 with eight home runs and 40 RBIs in 103 games at Memphis. The left-handed hitter is batting .367 in August.

Garcia appeared in seven games earlier in the season and was 2 for 10 with an RBI. He was hit by a pitch in the 12th inning for the game-winning RBI against the Cubs on May 13.

Patrick Towles says he felt relieved after winning the competition to be Kentucky's starting quarterback. He says is "super excited" to get the opportunity that he has worked so hard to get.

The 6-foot-5, 238-pound redshirt sophomore was considered the favorite heading into camp, and he eventually beat out redshirt freshman Reese Phillips, freshman Drew Barker and junior Maxwell Smith. Towles will be under center for the Wildcats' Aug. 30 season opener against Tennessee-Martin.

Coach Mark Stoops' long-awaited announcement Monday culminated a frustrating journey for Towles, who arrived at Kentucky with high expectations in 2012 before falling off the radar last season and being redshirted.

Instead of giving up, Towles came back strong this spring after tweaking his mechanics and attitude.
